EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE softball has a busy weekend ahead for fall exhibition play with a pair of doubleheaders at Cougar Field.
The Cougars, 2-0 in the fall after a sweep this past Sunday over John A. Logan, faces Parkland College for a noon doubleheader Saturday followed by a noon doubleheader Sunday against Jefferson College.
SIUE Head Coach Jessica Jones said she is looking forward to the weekend.
"We had a good start last weekend against a well-coached team," said Jones. The returners got to knock the dust off their cleats and the newbies got to burn some of the first-game jitters off."
Jones' club hit .444 as a team this past Sunday. She said she plans to continue to move players in and out of the game and get valuable game experience on all fronts.
"We had a very tough week mourning the loss of one of our trainers – Kristin Weller," noted Jones. "We plan on taking this weekend to honor Kristin and her family as well as continue the personal healing process."
